H dreams and realities

Do your dreams and realities interlap?

1. Herbs. I vaguely recall being hazy on the indication that I "need to take a new approach toward some situation or relationship." Dream Moods Dictionary, which is my reference for today's T13 offers an alternative: "herbs are symbolic of healing and magic." I say AMEN.

2. Hero. Nope, didn't dream I was a hero but its significance on "innner strength and weaknesses; ability, determination and level of confidence" seems to be in the works for me. The power to "bravely face the secrets of my unconscious mind and confront life's challenges..." well, I need that power.

3. Hieroglyphics. I tend to drift with it whenever I visit art museums.

3. High Heels "represent femininity and glamour, you feel confident and self-assured." I am wearing Vivienne Westwood to a church concert, the Marinsky Ballet and a kick-ass meeting with university bigwigs tonight.

4. Hijack is "analogous to someone or something that has taken over an aspect of your life." Let me paraphrase this: I was hijacked by a shrivelled banana. It's true.

5. History. Art History, will you be my muse?

6. Hobby "suggests that you need to acknowledge your hidden talents or desires." If I ever have any talent it could be a desire fancying publication. Or vice versa.

7. Holidays. A long, big one and several quickies scattered every year.

8. Home is in most of my waking moments. I am building myself a charming little tropical cottage. Concrete makes me aware that it costs $*,***. Reality bites.

9. Honey "denotes that you need to be less meek and more honest in communicating with others" I have been brutal, baby! "Alternatively, seeing or eating honey in your dream represents gentleness, sweetness, compassion, wisdom, peace, longevity and joy." Now I'm not complaining.

10. Hazel is my name, an eye color, a Mac Software, a TV series, Harriet's dog, a tree....

11. Harmony. Chaos-causing heartaches, take a train to Timbuktu and begone!

12. Heaven. I mean Bryan Adams belting, "and baby you're all that I want when you're lying here in my arms, I'm finding it hard to believe we're in heaven..."

13. Happiness. 'Nuff said.

I wish I could remember my dreams. The only times I do have any memories are when they are night terrors.

I love my dream interpretation books. This is a very cool post for a TT! I like the alphabet idea, too.

Weekend Snapshot: The AIDS Temple (Lopburi I)

It is sometimes referred to as the AIDS Museum, I tend to call it AIDS Temple. Descriptively it is a buddhist hospice for AIDS patients, the largest one in Thailand. Three of us, a friend, my son and I paid Wat (temple) Phrabat Nampu in Lopburi a visit last weekend. As it is where people with AIDS go to to die, most of what we saw are not exactly the ones I'm in a hurry to show off. But if you are curious, you may want to click on a post I did days ago. Anyway, on with shots that I don't think will give anyone a coronary:

100 steps to the wat
After the climb this is where you arrive at

"View from the top" - those are bare cornfields visitors pass by on their way to the temple

Side view of the Life Museum which ironically displays mummies

A usual sight around Thai temples

Bone sculptures

The temple bell

Life is beautiful. Most of us would prefer that of course. AIDS is also real.

Rumford

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces....(Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat)Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey.
The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford, with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest English ch…

Honor, Awards and a Game

Tuesday Couch Potatoes: Made of Honor
Awards and a Game/Meme follow. Please scroll down a bit.


My pick for this week's TCP theme (wedding movie) is Made of Honor. I like the humor in it. We've all been to several weddings but how many of us can say I've been to one in which the maid of honor was a he? The scene which particularly cracked me up is when the priest mistook the maid of honor for a gay man =) If you're familiar with some of my likes, you'd know why I also love the Scotland location of the wedding. For more of the synopsis click here; and here's the trailer:

My super duper bloggy friend Thom of Thom's Place for Well Whatever and fellow Mom Tetcha of Pensive Thoughts awarded me this Beautiful Blogger award. I have to list seven things about me so here they are:

1. I love wearing jeans more than skirts.
2. One of my favorite colors is purple.
3. I don't mind spending sunrise…
